My husband built an awesome coop our last time around but we couldn't get through the summer with out loosing the majority. I felt like the coop was not AZ friendly. We need a new design. I figure with the extreme heat it would require open design but what about the monsoons? Help would be greatly appreciated. We just finished our hatch and have 12 silkies and we picked up 1 RIR and 1 Auracauna. We will not be keeping roosters so the numbers will prob be going down.
